Outdoor Dining

This small, sloping new-build garden is modified to provide more space to enjoy dining outdoors with a large practical kitchen area for the gas barbecue.  The existing patio is enlarged and re-surfaced with a more attractive paving.  The view from the patio is enhanced by a new border at the bottom of the garden to help to screen the fence and house behind.  New steps lead down to the ‘outdoor kitchen’, where the old paving is re-used to create a practical area to cook.  The slope is cut away to create the flat space for the kitchen area, and for a raised herb bed, giving easy access to culinary herbs for the cook.
